Ann Arbor Eyeing Backlog Of Tree Maintenance

Apr 24, 2014

Ann Arbor City Administrator Steve Powers is suggesting city council approve $1 million to attack a backlog of tree pruning and maintenance in his 2014-15 fiscal year budget.

Powers says high-priority tree pruning would be done with the funding, along with dead tree and stump removal.

Powers says the funding will help "to maintain Ann Arbor Tree City's urban forest, and to reduce risks to public safety."
